The TMF8801 is a robust true direct time-of-flight (ToF) sensor system

AMS AG TMF8801 product image

The TMF8801 is a robust true direct time-of-flight (ToF) sensor system that offers highly accurate depth accuracy detection through a sub-nanosecond light pulse and an antialiasing "stop-watch" method to measure round-trip time of pulse. It provides single-zone detection of an object, regardless of the color, reflectivity, and texture of the object.

An integrated microcontroller is featured with all algorithms included on-chip with no need for external optics. Ultra-compact technology use is featured through the industry‘s smallest modular package size of 2.2 x 3.6 x 1.0 mm.
